02/01/1999Order/ProceduralFiled Case Processing Order. Appellants filed a lengthy and singularly unhelpful response on December 28, 1998. 1[Appellants appear to have used the response as a vehicle to request additional relief from this court in the form of an order to the district court to enforce the injunction. Appellants' request is denied, without prejudice to appellants' abililty to seek relief through proper channels. Future violations of our rules will result in sanctions.] Appellants shall have 15 days from the date of this order to file a response limited to 3 pages and shall also show cause why sanctions should not be imposed. The briefing schedule and transcripts shall remain suspended pending further order of this court.

04/13/1999Order/ProceduralFiled Case Processing Order. 1[Our February 1, 1999, order also required appellants to show cause why sanctions should not be imposed for what appeared to be a misrepresentation in the docketing statement. We conclude that the statement was inaccurate, but that it did not rise to the level of disregard sanctioned in KDI Sylvan Pools v. Workman, 107 Nev. 340, 810 P.2d 1217 (1991), and therefore, we will refrain from imposing sanctions]. We deny the motion to dismiss the appeal from the order reducing the attorneys fee award. Appellants shall have 15 days from the date of this order to comply with the provisions of NRAP 9(a) and 120 days to file and serve the opening brief and appendix. Thereafter, briefing shall proceed in accordance with NRAP 31(a)(1).
